cherry tree update

These are my 23 completed blocks.  I thought I had only 20 done, but I surprised myself.  I am in love with it all over again.

I had to do lots of jiggling about with the blocks to get them all in the photos.  My camera stopped working, so have to use the phone, and I am getting better at that!

The block in the centre, the ring, is my favourite
My next favourite is the one with the swirling flowers
I love the baskets
and the rings    

I am working on getting a quilt completed to enter into an exo in June, and once the hand quilting is finished on it, I can get back the Cherry Tree blocks.

I have 23 blocks made

It turns out that I did not stop at 20, but have 23 blocks made.  I must have got really confused, and forgetful.  There are two blocks in this quilt, that are almost identical ----but not quite....blocks 23 and 25.  Would you agree?  Looking back over my blocks, and the saved copies of patterns, it looks like I have block 23 but not 25.  Seeing how I have only 2 to go (plus the border!) I figured i might as well keep going. 

Would anyone be prepared to share their saved copy of block 25 with me?  Or is this really bad manners?

My other option is to choose the 20 that I like the best, and use the 3 extras as cushion covers.
